The Giardino Tropicale provided me with the perfect spot for my week long surf trip. The staff did everything to make you feel at home and the short walk to the beach was perfect for getting to the waves quickly.

Spacialle and Enrique did a great job helping to entertain our large busy group. Great hosts!! They coordinated our massages, canopy tour and gave us excellent recommendations throughout our 9 days in Costa Rica. The surf school is a fun bonus to the hotel. We had family dinner one night with all of the tuna our boys caught. There were...

We stayed at Giordino Tropicale for 2 weeks in September. It was our first trip in years and far exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived, Spacialle and Enrique, were there to greet us and guide us. They led us toward every option available with details, and have it all at their fingertips. Many things are offered on the...

I spent a week at Giardino Tropicale on yoga retreat. Spacialle and Enrique are wonderful hosts and they really make you feel at home. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and they really knock it out of the park! Best avocado toast and homemade smoothies! I loved walking around the beautiful gardens, watching the monkeys, and lounging by...

Had an amazing family stay in the Hotel. The family suite was stunning with a huge balcony. Beach is incredible. The surf school was a highlight for the kids. Gardens and pool work really well. Advice on places to eat and visit made it all so easy. Don't miss the restaurant upstairs and Luna at sunset.

Thank you for your stay and enjoying the best room in the house! So glad you had time to enjoy the surf school and the pool! La Luna is a great sunset spot, and now the Lagarta has opened back up, so there's a second Pelada sunset place again. Hope to see you again!

We are repeat visitors and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. The Hotel is nestled in the jungle, yet steps from the beach and where all the action is. The pool is gorgeous and surrounded by paths and gardens, which are visited by the local wildlife: howler monkeys, a huge resident green iguana, hummingbirds, butterflies and of course some domestic...
